Charity benefits from CUs football-game parking fees
GREEN BAY, Wis. (10/22/09)--Pioneer CU donates money generated from fees for parking cars on its property during Green Bay Packer football games to charity. The $409 million asset, Green Bay, Wis.-based credit union is one of several businesses near Lambeau Field--the Packers’ stadium--that gives parking fees to nonprofit organizations and charities (Green Bay Press-Gazette Oct. 19). Pioneer officials take turns parking cars during Packer games. They also choose which organization receives the parking revenue when its turn comes up, the newspaper said. For the past 25 years, the credit union has supported the Boys & Girls Club, Freedom House, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, the Bay Area Humane Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters and a skating program for the handicapped, the paper said. Pioneer’s parking lot holds 200 cars, and it collects between $17,000 and $20,000 per year, Pioneer CEO Tom Young told the paper. Also, people are respectful of the fact that the money goes to charity, Joe Slattery, Pioneer vice president of marketing, told the paper. Three customers who parked at past Packer games before credit union officials were there to collect money paid their past-due fees Sunday, he added.
